DO NOT Mistake Motion for Action

This is something that we all struggle with at various moments in our lives.

Why?

Because being in motion and taking action are similar, but not the same. They both give you something to do, but… Continue reading

Obstacles

“Don’t let life discourage you; everyone who got where they are had to begin where they were.” — Richard L. Evans

There comes a time when a certain number of obstacles get in the way of you getting what you want.

Setbacks.

Failures.

Disappointments.

What you thought would happen, didn’t. Your expectations turned out to be misguided.

What do you do then?

Well, the answer is simple. Rest, if you have to. Don’t quit, but take a short break to think things through. What happened, who did what, and what has to be done to improve the situation.

Don’t spend too much time though. You’ve got to keep moving forward, no matter what. Continue reading

If You Can’t Bear no Crosses…

If you can’t bear no crosses, you can’t wear no crown.

If you do not fight for what you want, you’ll never have it.

Success is never owned, only rented. Continue reading

Rome Wasn’t Built in a Day…

…but they worked on it every single day.

We often think of success as a singular moment. The fight that wins the championship, the last game of the tournament, the speech, the novel that changes everything.

Well, it’s not like that. Continue reading

On Adversity

On the road to their destiny, halfway through, every person will be tempted to give up. Some turn around and go back. The others stay committed and keep moving forward. What’s interesting, is both people travel the same distance. One goes halfway back to where they started, the other goes halfway ahead and reaches their goal. Committed people outlast the difficulty.” – Joel Osteen

Life’s unpredictable. We may try to find a bit of certainty, or create it, and we may think or do or adopt certain behaviors, but the truth is, we never know what’s going to happen.

We, of course, have expectations. We imagine the world in a certain way, life happening at a certain pace, the universe being governed by a strict set of rules.

You work hard, you do your best, the universe rewards you. Continue reading

What’s Your Motivation?

What’s your motivation?

What inspires you?
What makes you want to get out of bed in the morning?
Why do you do what you do?
Because, I can tell you one thing. If you want to be happy, you’ll never be. If you want to be successful, rich, famous, you won’t be any of those things either.
If you try to adapt to the world around you, you’ll feel less and less like yourself until you probably won’t be able to recognize yourself in the mirror anymore.
If you try to change the world according to your own needs and desires, the world will break your back, the same way the ones you wish to love you break your heart.
There’s only one way to get everything you want, and that is to give everything.
You get what you give.
This is not about becoming saints on Earth or Heaven. It’s not about religious principles or stuff like that.

Fake it Until You Make it

To be happy, we must become happy with who we are; we must accept ourselves, recognize the good, accept the bad, and come to see our flaws and shortcomings as proof of us being human.

But if you’re like me, there’s always something you want to change — fine tuning daily habits to help you reach your goals.

The problem is, many people just don’t believe they can actually do it — they have a negative self-image, and that negativity will stop them from achieving their goals every single time.

So today’s post is about this simple concept:

Fake it until you make it.
